Walked into the bathroom and the significant other was cleaning the bathroom and I see something drop in the bag of the trash can. I say what is that and she said oh nothing, I said no what was it and holy cow it's my COBRA. So now I must start moving my shaving stuff so this never happens again. Also means, I must find another great working Cobra in case something ever happens to this one.

Very close. IF that razor would of hit the title and bent or messed up I would of had heat coming out of my ears like in the movies. She said, I would of bought you another one if I messed it up. I replied, you just can't buy these things!!!

It sounds like you need to SO-proof your stuff, just like you would child-proof.

It would of been bad, end of story. She hasn't talked to me since it happened because she thinks the razor is more important to her, ha.

My bathroom is small so I can't store my shaving gear there.

Bathrooms are wet and I can't think the moisture does shaving gear any good at all.

Virtue out of necessity meant storing my gear elsewhere and I like it.

A nice storage place outside the bathroom where you gather up and replace your gear might help your peace of mind and better preserve your stuff.

This made me chuckle a little!

This sounds absolutely awful! May have to keep all your gear in the garage!

We have double sinks and there is this sort of magical line drawn down the middle of the counter. Anything on my side of that line she does not touch. She cleans her side and I clean mine.

Half my gear is in my bathroom below the sink... Many other brushes, razors and products "on ice" in my bedroom....Here's a pic of the bedroom stuff on display, except when in use of course!...all other "on ice" products fill one bag and one draw. (I covered the family pics for privacy-I'm sure nobody here is interested in those anyway)Mr.Chubby3 hasn't even been used yet in this picHeart

Close one! I am glad you noticed it fall in the trash can, that would have been a very expensive accident.

What did she think it was? Did she sweep it into the can or just bump it?

Crazy.

I only keep brushes in the bathroom. Sadly, the sink keeps getting super crowded no matter how hard I try to keep it clean. Possibly something to do with my obsession with not using the same stuff back to back.

Empirical evidence has proven that trash cans at the edges of desks and counters have a gravitational vortex of their own.

If she asks, "Would you love me if I was a razor?" you know you are in deep deep trouble.

Well she is pretty OCD about cleaning. She knew it was a razor, however in cleaning the sink and counter top she moves all the stuff off, puts in on a hand towel, and sits it on the back of the toilet. She was trying to pick up the whole towel and just move it back to the counter top how I have it all sitting. Needless to say, I shaved with the Cobra this morning and it seems it is still operating just fine. However, it's the thought of that thing being damaged so yes I am already planning to get a back up. I mean, can you ever have to many of your favorite razor?

I used to think yes, but I'm beginning to wonder if that's the right thinking....
